“ Midnight Tour ”

Many thanks to Kashima for staying up late to show our family some interesting parts of Tokyo during our odd-hours layover at Haneda. We could not have found a nicer guy for our tour guide. He took good care of us and arranged a fantastic taxi van and driver. Very comfortable, and I'm very grateful he chose places that would be fun for my kids. I hope we have a chance to visit Tokyo again - if so, we'll definitely contact Kashima to show us around! Highly recommended. Thanks again, Kashima!!

KASHIMA:

Gordon san, Thank you very much for your kind and great comments for me. I am very much pleased that you, your wife and your two kids could enjoy the midnight tour of Tokyo and Tokyo surrounding. We at first visited the midnight amusement park in Ichikawa-city in Chiba prefecture from Haneda airport by riding a Van taxi on high-way with watching beautiful midnight sightseeing. After your kids enjoyed several games there, we went a midnight restaurant and took a very late dinner. Then, we drove around midnight Tokyo by visiting several spots such as Marunouchi (many skyscrapers standing with lots of illumination), Roppongi hills, Tokyo tower and Rainbow-bridge with beautiful night view of Tokyo bay. Specially, we once got out of the car near Tokyo tower and took pictures. You all were so im... read more

Raydoreonia san, Thank you very much for your great comments for me. I am very much pleased that you spent your precious time to come to Tokyo from your Staying hotel in Kyoto and selected me as a guide for your Tokyo half day tour with your returning back to Kyoto after the tour. We enjoyed the tour mainly for your cute young daughter shopping in Harajyuku and Omotesando. I am so impressive and pleased that you daughter enjoyed the shopping very much. Also we could have a very funny conversation each other. I am looking forward to meeting you and your family again for your next trip in Japan. Thanks, Kashima

“ Kashima san made this a special day! ”

Kashima san and I toured Kamakura and from beginning to the end he was the perfect guide. He was prepared for a great day - even printing out a notebook for me providing history and details about our sites which was very appreciated. He was also very fun with great since of humor —excellent company for a single tourist. Thank you for making this such a memorable day!

KASHIMA:

Steve san, Thank you very much for your kind and great comments for me. And I am very much appreciated that you took a little risk to go Kamakura tour under the condition of typhoon approaching to Kanto erea on the day. Fortunately, without heavy rain and wind condition, we could visit the target spots of Tsuruoka Hachiman shrine, Great Buddha, Hase temple, Hokokuji temple and good lunch on Komachi street. I think that you already got well knowledge of Shinto and Buddhism such as Nyorai, Kannon, Jizou, Zen Buddhism ,Samurai spirit and the difference between Shinto and Buddhism thanks to your strong curiosity. I am looking forward to receiving your next guide request again for you and your family. Thanks, Kashima
